Flowers stolen from the gravesite of newly deceased
by Jeanne Carter, Newnan
On Monday, April 15, we buried a beloved family member at Oak Hill Cemetery.
We came back to the gravesite on Tuesday morning, and found that the entire casket blanket had been stolen overnight.
This lovely blanket of flowers contained many dozens of red roses, white stock, baby’s breath, and green ferns.
If someone received a bouquet of dozens of roses perhaps they came from this gravesite.
In the future it might be prudent for our family and others to send donations of the hundreds of dollars the roses cost to a charity instead of providing cemetery thieves the opportunity to steal from the dead and grieving families again.
